For those of you who don't sit at your computers and drool over the newest Apple releases, we've got you covered on the newest information on the iPhone 7.

Though similar to the 6S, the phone is now water resistant. Which, if you're prone to accidents, hey, that's a major upgrade!

Some of the other updates, according to The Verge are the following:

    - Optical Image Stabilizer to help shaking hands
    - Wide F 1.8 lens that lets more light in for low light images
